Veterans Day

Kamila Kudelska

For the past four years, Park County School District #6 in Cody has brought together all of its schools to create one mass celebration in honor of veterans.

Five U.S. soldiers lost their lives just in the month of October. And their names will be among the 7,000 read aloud on November 10 outside the University of Wyoming student union as a part of the National Roll Call in honor of Veterans Day.

The event, which happens on university campuses across the country, recognizes the service members who have died in military operations since the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.

The event begins at 8 a.m. with the presentation of the colors and will conclude with a performance of “Taps” around 7 pm.

In honor of Veterans Day, stories from the Vietnam and Iraq Wars.
